Abstract:

This document contains the proceedings of a workshop held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology on Fire Growth and Spread on objects typically found in residential settings. The focus of interest is the period from the ignition of the initial object up to the point where the fire results in the ignition of a second item. The purpose of the workshop was to obtain an understanding of the current status of experimental characterization and modeling capability, and to provide guidance for future research efforts. The workshop was organized into several sessions with specific topics areas. Several presentations were included in each session, with an extended period for discussion at the end of each session. For each presentation, an extended abstract by the author is included along with any visuals used for the presentation. For each workshop session, the session moderator prepared a summary of key points of research interest from the resentations and discussion. All of the documents are in pdf format, requiring Adobe Acrobat Reader to access the files.
